This is the third and supposedly final installment in the series. It is full time action from beginning to the end. The Jason Bourne character played by Matt Damon continues to be expanded with additional depth surprisingly added. Joan Allen who reprises her role as Pamela Landy continues to bring gravitas and rises once more to the occasion and really takes it to an even greater level.

The return of Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) is a surprise and brings the needed concern for a love interest (or a possible love interest) that the second episode lacked after the opening sequence. The CIA Director Ezra Kramer (Scott Glenn) and The Assistant David Straitharn (Noah Vosen) are the ‘bad guys’ in this story and their actions and reactions are far too easy to predict. Albert Finney has a very short role as Dr. Albert Hirsch and yet his acting is memorable and essential in making the ultimate story line believable.

This movie surpasses the usual fare in trilogies and provides a story that actually stands on its own and surpasses ones expectations.  If you saw the first two ‘Bourne’ movies then you will like this one for sure, it does deliver.            *Top
